The Mighty Men Conference is attended by men who are drawn to the goodness of GOD THE FATHER by HIS LOVE and by being together in FELLOWSHIP.
The Conference is hosted at Farm Mooi Uitsig, just outside of Jeffreys Bay. Gospel singer Retief Burger will lead our praise and worship before & after our special guest speakers who take to the stage on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Campers have access to a designated braai area and cold water showers. Food stalls will also be available during the conference, however you are welcome to bring your own food and drink. We hope to see you there! If you are planning to attend remember to bring a chair, hat, sunscreen and some TICK REPELLENT.

A brief history:
The Mighty Men Conference was a single annual gathering of Christian men and boys which ran from 2004 to 2010. The Conference included outdoor camping and preaching by Angus Buchan. 2017 was the last conference held at Rusoord in the Karoo. The first conference to be held in the Eastern Cape took place in March 2018 and was a huge success. 2019's event is taking place on Farm Mooi Uitsig in Jeffreys Bay.
South African farmer Angus Buchan began the conference in 2004, with reports of attendees varying from a few dozen to 240. The number of attendees grew rapidly each year, with numbers reportedly rising to 600 in 2005 and 1060 in 2006. 7,400 Attendees were recorded in 2007 and 60,000 in 2008. The final national event in 2010 was attended by up to 300,000 men and boys. Mighty Men Conferences have continued to take place around South Africa and the world, however these are no longer organised as one central conference by the Shalom Trust.
The Karoo Mighty Men Conference was one of the regional conferences birthed from the mandate given to them by Angus on the last Mighty Men held at Shalom in 2010. The Karoo Mighty Men Conference carried this calling from 2011 – 2017.
Mighty Men Eastern Cape received the honour and privilege to carry on with the calling to allow the Lord to impact the lives of men and ensuring that they take up their rightful place in the home as King, Prophet and Priest.
